Calvary Church of Lemont has the privilege of serving the rapidly expanding population and increasing diversity of our village and the southwest suburbs of Chicago. Our congregation is a gathering of people with diverse backgrounds, personalities, age groups, careers, and lifestyles; yet we are united as a community by our relationship with Jesus Christ.
Too often such diversity builds walls between people. We are called by Jesus to be a "church without walls" where all are accepted and where diversity is a mark of the richness and beauty of church life.
Calvary seeks to be centered in the reconciling love of Jesus that the Apostle Paul refers to in his letter to the church in Ephesus; "For Christ himself has made peace between us... He has broken down the wall of hostility that used to separate us... Christ reconciled both groups to God by means of His death..." Ephesians 2:14-16 (NLT).
Our mission represents the way we model our church, the way we seek to live our lives, and the way we strive to serve God. While our mission may seem simple, it is the core of our church. Everything we do is based around these three points:
know Jesus. love each other. serve the world.
